Itinerary

When does my tour start?

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a unique rainforest experience, taking you on an unforgettable journey over and through Australia's World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests.

Spanning 7.5kms in the Barron Gorge National Park, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway glides just metres over the canopy, its comfortable six-person gondola cabins providing spectacular views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and lush Cairns Highlands. Your adventure includes time at two mid-stations, where you can alight from the cableway learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor.

At Red Peak Station, Skyrail's Rangers provide guided boardwalk tours sharing their knowledge on these ancient tropical forests, amongst giant buttress roots, ancient Kauri Pines and climbing wait-a-while palms. Barron Falls Station has pathways and lookouts over the Barron Gorge and Falls, historical displays and a Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Developed in conjunction with CSIRO, the Rainforest Interpretation Centre houses interactive touch-screen computers and audio-visual displays, providing an engaging and fun learning experience for people of all ages.

At the end of the journey come to the unique town of Kuranda and enjoy the arts and crafts markets before joining the Kuranda Scenic Railway.  This famous railway winds its way on a journey of approximately 1 hour 45 minutes from Kuranda to Cairns in a spectacular journey comprising unsurpassed views of dense rainforests, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls.  With fascinating commentary you will learn about the trials and successes of building such an engineering feat, as well as have time to relax and take in the scenery. 

Arrive to Freshwater Train station in Cairns to meet your  transfer to your cruise ship.
